find your gift. the purpose of life is to give it away. >> is that aenon? >> that's picasso. >> remember the story i told you about the stones? >> yeah. >> we wrote a song about it and the line came to us, what is the one thing that you can do that no one else can do but you? what is your stone, what is your gift? >> that's exactly it. >> pablo and i. >> you guys are like "that." >> so hoda's got a feature in -- >> there's a magazine. >> the happy" magazine. you dress for the magazine. so here's what she -- there she is. look at this crazy woman. >> i look like a nut, like a crazy freak. >> positively hoda.
some kind of meds. >> well, you probably are. what does this say? is it all book-related? >> happy tips and stuff like that. would you like to hear them? >> every day is like an unexpected unexpected mini gift wrapped in a bow. i am grateful for whatever experience lies ahead and i just soak it in. that's exactly what she does. that's exactly the way you live your life. >> they asked for happy tips. >> yeah. because you're happy >>which is my first one. i play music. sometimes i clickety clack online and look for a graduation speech, the best they have to offer to a class that has a long way ahead. there's something about that i like. >> we missed one.
because the little things in life add up to everything. >> yes. and i do other things. we're nice. we seek joy, anyway, thank you for everybody who came to buy the book "where we belong." that was nice of you. >> you can stillet it on aem son -- amazon. >> we love this guy. >> ricky gervais said he would never do it again, but guess what, he's doing it again. we adore him. >> he's going to host the golden globes. he recently said to ellen, they said i could say what i wanted to say again. the promos have been cool, haven't they? >> wonder who he's going to poke at. >> hi, i'm ricky gervais, and i'm hosting the golden globes on january 10th. watch it if you have nothing better to do, for three hours. [ laughter ]
>> there's always a little bit of truth in everything he says. >> and they do air live this nbc. and everybody's going to be out there but us. >> we're here! >> hoda has to hold down the fort in case there's breaking news. >> jennifer lawrence is on the cover of a magazine, and she talked about fame and had interesting things to say. she said i think we should be allowed time off from being famous. she said she'd love to have three months off from being photographed. >> yeah, but then she said she hates to complain about it, but calls it the movie star blues, which is hard for regular people to empathize with, i believe. ey'd give anythinin to have her life, her looks, her, her, her talent, her everything.
to people who, that's their dream. >> yes. >> and i think sometimes, i think this happened very early for her and very easily in terms of -- i mean, she does hard work, but she was discovered quickly. one movie after another. she doesn't have to audition probably for anything anymore. so there's a part of me that understands what she's talking about. but for the person who has never been famous and only wants to be famous and only wants to be on a red carpet once in their life, it doesn't come off probably the way she intended it to. >> i totally agree with that. if you're famous, people are spending their hard-earned money to boy movie tickets and stuff like that, and then when you see that person, you want to approach them in a restaurant, and who doesn't want to do that. i think it's part of the drill. >> it's part of the territory. >> she's not on social media. >> she said no, because then that's more me.
i want people to have less me. >> oh. that said, she's on the cover of the magazine. on newsstands, january 12th. there were two tennis players playing in a competitive match in the hockman cup. something surprising happened. an american player named jack scott said to his opponent, >> so cute. >> he said hey, hewett, you may want to challenge that one. >> it was in if you want to challenge it. >> can you believe? lack at the individual look at the video and see.
challenge it. >> he is challenging. >> all right. challenge. it it >> it was in. >> it'ss in. it was in. >> by the way, hewett defeated this guy. 7-5-6-4. >> you know, he's not a sock. he's a hero. i think it's cool to see that kind of sportsmanship, we don't hear about it enough. and to see his sense of humor about it. i wonder if they're even friends. it makes you almost feel like they're friends. >> but he lackooks so shocked, like, dude. >> dude, dude. >> pretend for a second that you just stepped out of the shower. ? no thank you. >> what is the first thing you do? i know you're probably thinking, grab a towel. >> that's what i would do.
>> and you're dripping all over the floor. >> experts say you're skipping one crucial tip. >> and we don't know who they are. >> let's see how many people would do this. the most important thing you can do is check out your naked body in the mirror before drying off. [ laughter ] then they suggest listing five times while you're checking out your naked -- unless are' you, yosef, five things that you admire about your body. >> oh, no. that would be awful. that is an awful morning for me. >> i know! what if you can't even find one? >> >> no. >> i think it's going to depress you so much more. >> if i'm looking at that and trying to think of five things when i'm already late. >> and they just start coming to you. >> i know i can get one more. but i like to wrap up and pay as little attention to that.
getting older, too. your eyesight goes, and you look much better fuzzy. so i linger a little while, looking at myself. just a little while. but i only count to three things. [ laughter ] i am after all a very busy woman. i think that's just the silliest thing. get on with your day! forget about yourself for a change. >> one of the biggest turnoffs to me, even when we interview them, who are self-focussed. they seem very aware of how they're sitting, what they're saying, how they're positioning. it's like you're paying too much attention to yourself, it's not -- >> you know somebody who isn't? >> who? >> dennis quaid. >> he's our wednesday hunk day. >> lookk at his body at 61. i know he's got a farmer's tan, but -- >> that you can cover up with makeup. >> he's got wash board abs, he's
>> what was he doing with his hands? >> he was probably making a point or was watching a sporting event. >> who's number one. >> okay. baby girls' name. >> picture this. there's a couple in australia trying to figure out what to name their baby girl. the husband had a great idea. he said, let's name her lanesra. and the wife's like, that's beautiful. and it was beautiful. and lanesra went on to be 2 years old. and the husband said i'm going to tell you why i chose the name. she said her husband told her that it was his favorite soccer team, arsenal, spelled backwards! >> lanesra! a team!
>> it's like oprah and harprp >> p pple mess up. >> do you think twice before you hit the "send" but the ton on an e-mail? >> there's an entrepreneur that says there are certain things in e-mails that we should stop writing like "if this makes any sense", "i'm no expert", "sorry". >> you said you like that. this is an entrepreneur named tammy ries, created a plug-in. >> it will identify the word before you send. >> take out sorry, take out think. >> give you a chance to put something else in? because it's going to be very upsetting. >> i think it's to eliminate, i hate to bother you, but -- this
>> i am sure everybody who has e-mail has very bad storiri about oh, i sent it, and it was a mistake. but i think anytime somebody's humble it's a good thing. >> it's called just not sorry. you wonder if you're at risk for a heart attack? >> go to klg and hoda.com and take the test. >> find out what tests you need to stay healthy.
>> yeah, hodi. hodi. if your res lougs for 2016 is to get healthy, there are important numbers you need to know about before you head to the doctor this year. >> and we're not just talking about cholesterol, b bod pressure and bmi. we're talking about other simple tests that could predict whether you are at risk for a heart attack, diabetes or osteoporosis. >> here with us is dr. natalie azar. >> people tend not to pay too much attention. and if the doctor's not alarmed they leave not really knowing their numbers. >> why would we need to know? >> you know how you feel everyone in the world is on a statenin and if you're not you
doctors have b bn doing the cardiovascular risk calculator. they'll plug in your total cholesterol level. they will plug in your hdl, which is your good cholesterol, whether or not you're a smoker and your systolic blood pressure and put it into a calculator, and it will generate a risk of probability of having a heart attack in the next ten years. >> do they put your age in as well? >> it's meant for people over the age of 20 who don't already have heart disease or diabetes. this is that general pool of should i do it. if you are above 25% on that calculator, you are a candidate for statin therapy. and i have to tell you, cardiologists do this. when i refer my patients to a cardiologist, you get that number. >> the first thing you say, let's pretend you are at risk. the first thing you say is not
we need to reduce a, b, c, and d? >> there are modifiable risk factors and non-modifiable risk factors, the things you can't change, your age, your sex, your family history. >> hate to tell the good doctor she's wrong, but -- >> now and then. >> this is a number that is really a reflection of your blood sugar. we know diabetes is when your blood sugar's too high. or maybe you had a doughnut and your sugar is too high. we use a hemoglobin a1c. it's an accurate reflection of what your broodlood sugars are. if your regular levels are
number that you want checked, and it also is used t tonitor treatment. >> do you ask your doctor, hey, i want the hemoglobin a1c? >> most of them already do it. if you haven't been tested, it's something you should have checked. >> the bone density. you have to get a base level. >> the united states preventive society says you should do it younger if you're at risk. but we're talking about the f-r-a-x. but the frax, the frack actual risk assessment tool. it is a calculator.
information about who should be treated for osteoporosis. there are great therapies, but who's a candidate for being treated. this takes in account your smoking history, family history, you have have you ever had a fracture, and a check of your hip. it also checks anywhere in the body but in the hip. anyone treating osteoporosis uses that number. >> we have a whole bunch of stuff on our website. >> a lot. >> thank you. and to learn more about these important health numbers. >> you know where to go. klg and hoda.com. >> another resolution for the new years. >> getting ganized. >> you could get cash in the process. >> and we play who knew.
across the street. >> oh, really? is that the booby prize?prize? everyone loves the way dark clothes make them feel. and no one wants that feeling to fade. that's why there's woolite darks. it's free of harsh ingredients, keeping dark clothes looking like new for 30 washes so your love for dark clothes will never fade. woolite darks. seems like we've hit a road block. that reminds me... anyone have occasional constipation, diarrhea... ...gas, bloating? yes! one phillips' colon health probiotic cap each day helps defend against occasional digestive issues. with three types of good bacteria. live the regular life.
